Very Nice Hotel in a Magnificent Location
I had the pleasure of staying here back in February of this year (2004). I had the studio room for $169 in a smaller building across the parking lot from the main lobby building. The room was cutely furnished with a queen bed and nice chairs and attractive tv entertainment cabinet. The bathroom was all decked out in adobe tiles and was a bit cramped, but was not a real problem as I was traveling solo. In my opinion, the hotel itself is the nicest looking on the East Beach strip on Cabrillo which is absolutely a stunning looking drive and close proximity to the main business district of marvelous State Street. I did not have an ocean view room, only a small one facing a parking lot, this you want to avoid; get a room on at least the second or third floor of the main building; as the noise will be bothersome from cars coming and going. Also, get one with preferably, an ocean view and a patio, in the newly renovated section of the main building. The service at the hotel is excellent and there is an attractive and quite good restaurant called the Cantina for morning breakfasts. The staff was very pleasant and helpful and another great thing about this place, is that there is no charge for overnight parking. I would recommend the regular parking lot, as the underground parking is somewhat hard to get out of and you need a special code. In fact, i parked on a back street and it was fine. I would definitely recommend this place for couples, it has just the right level of romance factor is is great for that romantic Cabrillo, harborside stroll. All in all, the price was reasonable considering the no parking fee and the inherently high priced SB area ( I have stayed in basic motel type places with smoke-filled, ugly rooms for over $200 here). If you comfort, civility and good service, without expecting anything too exalted or top notched like the Four Seasons Biltmore (a gem), this is the place for you.
